Audio Review: Demon on the Down-low, Supernatural Selection, Book 3 by EJ. Russell, narrated by Greg Boudreaux

Demon on the Down-Low is the finale of the Supernatural Selection series

From the blurb:

After decades of unrequited love, this kangaroo will jump at the chance for a date. Any date.

Lovelorn kangaroo shifter Hamish Mulherne, drummer for the mega-hit rock band Hunter’s Moon, waited years for the band’s jaguar shifter bassist to notice him. Instead, she’s just gotten married and is in a thriving poly relationship. How is Hamish supposed to compete with that? But with everyone else in the band mated and revoltingly happy, he needs somebody. Since he can’t expect true love to strike twice, he signs up with Supernatural Selection. Because what the hell?

When Zeke Oz was placed at Supernatural Selection through the Sheol work-release program, he thought he was the luckiest demon alive. But when he seems responsible for several massive matchmaking errors, he’s put on notice: Find the perfect match for Hamish, or get booted back to Sheol for good. The only catch? He has to do it without the agency’s matchmaking spells, and Hamish simply will not engage.

But Zeke starts to believe that the reason all of Hamish’s dates fizzle is because nobody in the database is good enough for him. And Hamish realizes that his perfect match might be the cute demon who’s trying so hard to make him happy.

Jacquie's Review:

Demon on the Down-Low wraps up all the story threads from the previous 2 books but also adds in the storyline from the other mythmatched books. I admit I haven't read or listened to them so I'm probably missing out but it didn't diminish my enjoyment of the story at all.

I had to listen to this when I realised it was Zeke's story since I was pretty sure where the issues with the matches were coming from. While I was right, there were still some surprises along the way.
Hamish was a great match for Zeke and I loved the slower burn of their relationship and how they sort of dated first.

As always, the narration was fantastic, Greg Boudreaux is one of my favourite narrators and there were plenty of opportunities to showcase Boudreaux's range here. Moving from serious, emotional, funny and steamy scenes with ease.

Now to go back and read/listen to the other Mythmatched books

Rating: 5 Stars for both narration and story.

Alyssagp's Review:

After listening to the previous books in this series, I expected Zeke's story! Zeke's story didn't disappoint. 

Zeke, a demon, was a character in the earlier books as the Supernatural Selection's matchmaker for species wanting to find their soulmate. The Supernatural Selection program forces Zeke to shut down the program after many matchmaking fails. Zeke believes he shut down the program until he meets Hamish, a kangaroo shifter. Since Hamish is a kangaroo shifter, he is naturally Australian; Greg Boudreaux does a good job narrating him. 

When the audience first meets Hamish, he wants to get over his ex. One of his friends suggests he go to Supernatural Selection to get over her; Hamish receives more than a date, and he begins falling for Zeke. Zeke and Hamish inevitably end up together, but the couple deals with issues surrounding Zeke's lower demon status and his boss. 

Despite some of the problems Zeke and Hamish run into, their love for each other is powerful. I loved the cameo appearances of Ted, Quentin, Casimir, and Rusty in this book. 

I enjoyed this book, and the narrator, Greg Boudreaux, did a fantastic job telling this story. He brings the characters to life, and he draws in the audience.
